dienst, from wnbc. jonathan, you have some information on travel by tamerlan tsarnaev in and out of the country. which could be a significant lead. >> it is a lead that has concerned authorities and they're taking a hard look at it he's the one with the black hat, the one who died in the standoff with police overnight. the records that have, that explain to us is that he traveled last year, over six-month period, out of the united states. he flew out of new york on january 12th, 2012, to moscow and returned on july 17th, 2012. and whether he was visiting relatives, we're told he does have family there. but at the same time, they want to know whether he went for any sort of terror training during those travels. a couple of other points that highlight how these two brothers were not on the radar screen of law enforcement until after the bombings at the marathon. and that's because on these travel documents, for this older brother, he's listed as a person or instrument that may pose a threat to the security of the united states. and that that is posted on the documents this morning.

to this concern. >> kristen welker from the white house, jonathan dienst is sta standing by for us as well here in the studio. jonathan, what, if anything, can you add to this? what more with k you tell us about this suspicious letter mailed to the president or the suspicious letter that was also sent to senator richard shelby? >> we are hearing from the secret service that this letter addressed to the president was recovered at that remote screening facility. we started hearing rumblings last night that a letter had been sent to the white house and that the secret service was involved in an investigation and a spokesman did confirm for us this morning that a letter addressed to the president was recovered at that site. it is being tested. they're looking into whether it is connected to the same letters sent to capitol hill. we are hearing from a law enforcement source there's a sektd suspicious letter to senator wicker that they're also taking a look at, but that letter has not been tested yet. >> this would be a second letter on top of the first one, correct? >> that is what we are being told

'd like for you to standby for just a moment. we want to go to wnbc investigator reporter jonathan dienst. what can you tell us about these developments to be the? >> i can echo much of what pete williams was reporting, our justice correspondent a short time ago. we spoke with a law enforcement source who tells us there's a stronger possibility that the events of this evening are linked to the marathon bombings that took place. he said there are, quote, visual and physical evidence suggesting it is linked and that it looks more likely. these are quotes. and -- but, but it is not definitive. and there's work to be done in terms of positively identifying the suspects who are in custody here tonight. one of them who we're told from a law enforcement source was shot during this wild shootout and chase that took place from about 10:45 this evening till about 2:30 in the morning. but that increasingly, the quote, stronger possibility that the incidents of tonight are linked to the bombing. again, this all started with the shooting of an m.i.t. security, m.i.t. police officer shot and killed. an

reporter jonathan dienst. thank you, jonathan. what do we got new? you've listened to the first part of this show. we're talking about what the suspect has had to say, the surviving suspect about being out there all alone. two brothers operating alone, technically, and also apparently ideologically. they were picking up their radicalization over the internet. not through any coaching or role of anybody as a sort of a recruiter. >> well, that is the claim that investigators say is being made by the wounded younger brother who continues to recover in the hospital. investigators are now running around, as you heard, they're trying to verify that. they are checking with all of the relatives. you've got the wife, you've got two sisters in new jersey. you've got the parents overseas. you've got russian intelligence. you've got -- they're tracking their cell phones. as of now, nothing to indicate, but, again, it is still very early on for them to have done a deep dive to find out exactly if there are any connections to any others, whether there's a bomb maker or a trainer or some sort of ji

now wnbc's jonathan dienst is with us from new york. i understand you have a lot to brief us on in terms of the travel, in terms of the weaponry found at the site the other night. whatever you've got, we need it. >> we're told there are seven improvised explosive devices that have been recovered from the vehicle where they were allegedly throwing out the bombs at the police officers, to some of the devices that were found including one of those pressure cooker bombs that the older brother heaved toward the police officers and was opening fire during that wild and insane shootout that was taking place overnight. and the search continues for this suspect. they're doing it literally in a grid house-by-house, location-by-location in and around the area where he was last seen. have the whole area cordoned off. why is it taking so much time? because it is a significant area they're recovering. they remain hopeful that they will track him down, but we've got no indication that they have a sight on him at this hour. >> tell me about the older brother's travel to russia. >> yeah, it w

jonathan dienst just said, sir? >> well, the department of homeland security has access to the documents that will show the travel patterns of the dead suspect. so they are combing through the travel records to see if there were other travels by all three of them or anybody else who might have been connected to this to parts of the world known to be terror training areas furthermore, there is citizenship and immigration services. as was just pointed out, we know that these two came to the united states legally. there are immigration papers that will give further detail. furthermore, they are, working with federal, state, and local and with the intelligence community to comb through the huge amount of data reports streaming in to see if there was anything that might have been missed pointing to this plot, pointing to these three people, associates that these three people might have had and so the department of homeland security is, needless to say, very busy right now. >> clark, would they also be looking at money flows? i ask this because the family came to the united states and sought a

, in boston and overseas. >> jonathan dienst, appreciate it. the big tragedy for me, part of this story is that the fbi did not have its chance of questioning this suspect and the mirandaizing put in by the justice department was way too short. this is now coming out. the fbi is sending its sources out there. they were interrupted. we are not getting the information we should be getting from that interrogation because of the decisions by the u.s. justice department, who knows? that's one of the tragedies, anyways, under surveillance cameras are an anti-camera tool. they have roughly 6,000 cameras city wide, but in the wake of the boston tragedy, is that enough? here's more from mayor bloomberg's news conference today. >> we've made major investments in camera technology, not withstanding the objections of some special interests and the attacks in boston demonstrate how valuable those cameras can be. >> we want to expand our cameras, the number of cameras we have and we'd like to also, in that universe, expand our smart camera capably. >> all right. joining us now is the former director

that jonathan dienst uncovered showing that six-month period that tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother was out of the country, left for russia. we don't know where in russia he went. we don't know who he met with. but we do know it was just a month after he returned that a youtube account was created in his name that was filled with all sorts of radical islamic postings and videos about an ultimate battle between an islamic army from kurzan, which is central asia, defeating in an armageddon-like struggle. a clear indication that the radicalization took place while he was abroad. in fact, we heard the uncle speaking to reporters earlier today saying that these were good kids and somebody radicalized them. so i think that's going to be a major question that u.s. authorities and congressional investigators are going to be asking in the weeks and months after this is all over. what happened here? how did these two kids who grew up almost entirely in the united states become radicalized and come to hate americans? and who radicalized them? who played that role? >> and that was just a month after he

think that's the best argument that they were up to more trouble. let me go to jonathan dienst, who broke the story for nbc. how do you know this? >> our best have understanding is that this was only aspirat n aspirational. based on the debriefing that they're doing of the surviving terror suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev. that he was claim, first he claimed that they wanted to new york to party. but under continuing interrogation, it now appears that they did discuss aspiration about coming to new york to hit times square perhaps set off the rest of the explosions. but again, there's nothing to indicate they ever did any sort of scouting. it was on the fly conversation as described to us. and that there's nothing to indicate there was any specific threat to new york. at that time. and that this is coming out of the debriefings, the questioning that investigators had done of that suspect. yesterday, police commissioner kelly was quite clear that there was no threat to new york. and that his understanding, his best information yesterday was that it was sort of a social visit and that ther

, and jonathan dienst, thank you both for joining me tonight. >>> next, you will hear from one of the bombing victims who lost her leg and is determined to learn to walk again. >>> and the president spoke at a memorial for the 12 who died at the west, texas fertilizer plant. the question investigators have to answer, is this an industrial accident or was it manslaughter. >>> also in texas today, the newest american shrine to a man who doesn't deserve one was formally dedicated. in the rewrite tonight, how the presidential library racket is beneath the dignity of the presidency. when our little girl was born, we got a subaru. it's where she said her first word.

in wnbc's jonathan ,bèdienst. we're getting news that terror suspect, tamerlan tsarnaev who was killed in a shootout this morning is reportedly flew in and out of john f. kennedy last year and was out of the country for six months. investigators do not know if tsarnaev received any terror training while he was overseas, but it adds another piece to this evolving puzzle. >> that's the question they want to ask, what he was he doing overseize, he does have relatives in russia and he flew in and out of the country, back to kennedy airport, he flew out of new york on january 12th, 2012. and records indicate he returned on july 17th, 2012. and now they want to figure out that gap in time. was it just a family trip or did he go for any sort of terror training. and that is one aspect of the investigation. his brother, as well, there are some documents as well about what he entered the country. he entered as a young man. with his family and they applied for asylum and it was received. and on the older brother's documents here, it suggests that he became a naturalized u.s. citizen on 9/11, 2012

. they stopped a train in norwalk, according to our colleague, jonathan dienst from wnbc. they searched that train, but they didn't see any sign of a suspect and the train was being released to continue on. so at this point it seems police are looking for 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. his brother tamerlan tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police overnight and they're looking for a second suspect, a person of interest in this case, carl? >> that is a key development, bertha, as the geographic area of interest, at least has obviously a lot broader than just watertown. we will take a quick break and bring you more developments on the markets and boston as "squawk on the street" continues. i turned 65 last week. the math of retirement is different today. money has to last longer. i don't want to pour over pie charts all day. i want to travel, and i want the income to do it. ishares incomes etfs. low cost and diversified. find out why nine out of ten large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus, which includes inv

with you and i believe we have some information from jonathan dienst as well as pete williams about the travel records. pete, i'll go to you in washington. are you with me? >> i am. >> all right, do you have that information? >> well, what i can tell you is that we're trying to understand exactly why the city of boston is under such a rigorous lockdown and what it is exactly that they're looking for. we know that they're looking for some other people who might be associates of these two men who were identified by the fbi as the marathon bombers. we know that they found another device this morning. the boston police did that, that is, and disabled it, but it certainly seems that maybe there's a different way to think of this. one possible scenario here is that these were not, these other two people were not merely associates who were friends that have suddenly taken a bad turn. but it is possible that perhaps there were more than two people involved in the marathon bombing. and that the right way to think of this is that the two men who were shown their pictures were shown were the t
